WomensNet Mini Grant Awarded to Dinkers


Woman Entrepreneur:
Stefanie Powell

Congratulations to Stefanie Powell, Founder and CEO of Dinkers for being the WomensNet Mini Grant recipient.

Dinkers is a dedicated pickleball facility in East Rochester, NY. Powell explains,  “I wanted to do this because as winter was approaching and gyms were still closed we didn’t have a warm safe place to play. I had a chance to give back to the very community that has helped me, and I am very humbled…”

The Mini Grant will help Dinkers build and maintain outdoor pickleball courts.

We hope the community continues to enjoy Dinkers.

Applications are currently being reviewed for the $10,000 Amber Grant. You can apply today to be considered.
